The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel

A Study of a luxury 5-star property in Hong Kong

The stunning new Landmark Mandarin Oriental is one of Asia’s most luxurious, stylish and contemporary hotels, with some of the largest guestrooms in the region and also one of its premier holistic spas offering a comprehensive range of Eastern and Western treatments.

The hotel is located at The Landmark in the heart of Central, a few steps from most of Hong Kong’s key commercial buildings and shops that provide the highest concentration of luxury brands in Asia. This premier location, combined with international architect-designed bars and restaurants and superlative food and wine, ensure the hotel will be an irresistible magnet for Hong Kong's social and business elite. In addition, purpose-built function rooms are perfect for designer fashion shows, product launches and other celebrations.

Anthony Costa, General Manager says, "The Landmark Mandarin Oriental has established a new benchmark for luxury, elegance and dedicated service combined with state-of-the-art technology and the latest in contemporary design."

It is the first time that world-renowned hotel interior designers, Hong Kong born Peter Remedios and Transylvania, Adam D. Tihany have worked together. Remedios, who is based in Los Angeles, designed the 113 stunning rooms and suites and the spa, while Tihany has created unique restaurant and bar concepts that are destined to be Central’s new icons.

L600 Room

The hotel offers the largest guestrooms in Hong Kong, with an average size of over 540 ft2 - most of the rooms are over 600 ft2 - a true indulgence in a busy metropolis where ample space to relax is a luxury. Every aspect is designed for pure sensory indulgence, from the avant garde objets d’art and the stunning glass-walled bathrooms, to the 400 thread-count linen and the revolutionary in-room guest entertainment, with most rooms having three LCD televisions.

Amber

The signature 7th floor restaurant, Amber, is as stunning as its first class contemporary cuisine and excellent wine list. Meanwhile, the hotel bar, called MO Bar, is destined to be one of Central’s most exciting and sophisticated meeting places where hotel guests and the city's most stylish can enjoy a range of cocktails, fine wines and champagne until the early hours of the morning. MO Bar is located on two levels and features a huge red light circle, the Big ‘O’, a Chinese symbol for shared experience, on one end of the bar.

The Oriental Spa is undoubtedly the premier urban spa in Asia. Located on two floors of the hotel, it features calming and relaxing natural materials such as bamboo, natural stone and wood. The 25,000 square foot spa offers a comprehensive range of health, beauty and massage treatments, with signature treatments created exclusively for Mandarin Oriental. Therapists at The Oriental Spa have been trained in the finest ancient traditions of Chinese, European, and Thai cultures.

With 15 treatment rooms, including the stunning 700 sq. ft Sanctuary Suite for couples, The Oriental Spa offers indoor-heated swimming pool, yoga and pilates studios, expansive heat experience area featuring Haman, Laconium, Rasul, Zen relaxation room, and a state-of-the-art gymnasium.

"We want guests to immerse themselves in the whole spa experience. We encourage them to arrive early, they can also relax in the vitality pool, amethyst crystal steam room, and experience showers, or they can enjoy a refreshing drink in the Spa Café before their treatment," says Mr Costa.

The hotel is a mere 2-3 minute stroll via air-conditioned sky bridges to most of the key locations in Central. It is adjacent to Central MTR station, and five minutes’ walk to Hong Kong Airport Express station. Housed in the same complex are some of Hong Kong's most exclusive shops, including the first Harvey Nichols store outside of the UK, which opened in September of 2005.
